SANDRA SMITH (CO-HOST): But is it a good strategy, as far as what we're seeing now from the president Trish, going on the offensive, warning Mueller, don't dig into my finances, don't dig into my family's finances, he's certainly put himself on the offense. 

TRISH REGAN (CO-HOST): I think it is, only because I think this is a witch hunt, and it's gotten out of control and someone needs to speak up. If you were president of the United States and you basically had Comey's buddy investigating you, and then Comey's buddy goes out and hires a whole bunch of people that have donated to Hillary Clinton's campaign and donated to the DNC, you're going to start to wonder there. I mean, it doesn't feel like a fair fight. They want to solve for this equation, they assume he is guilty of a crime and they're going to do everything they can to try and connect those dots.
